    This place is humiliation for me,unfortunately. Their menus are more expensive than any middle-class restaurant at Bay Area. I just liked shrimps on my risotto. The mojito I ordered was like a water.

    The prosciutto salad is deliciously well balanced. Get the sweetbreads if available; you won't regret it!
